Ever wondered how to pray or make wudu in space? Where would you face for qibla? How would you fast in Ramadan? Well in Malaysia, they are having a serious 2 day conference dedicated to answering questions about Muslims in space.
For instance, Muslims wash before they pray but not only is water a precious commodity in space, but it is also impractical in weightlessness.
Likewise, the faithful face Mecca. However, that will mean pin-pointing a moving location while in zero gravity.
And Muslim prayer times are linked to those of the sunrise and sunset, but in orbit the sun appears to rise and set more than a dozen times a day.
Does floating break your salah? HAHAHAHA
